Polokwane - The arrest of a relative of the farmer killed at his smallholding near Thabazimbi on Friday illustrates that not all farm attacks involve race, Sanco said on Sunday. "The fact that the arrested suspect is a relative [of] the murdered 54-year-old... highlights that some callous farm murders are not politically and or racially motivated but are crimes of passion involving family disputes," Sanco spokesperson Jabu Mahlangu said in a statement. The suspect allegedly attempted to commit suicide by shooting himself, however he survived.Police spokesperson Lieutenant-Colonel Moatshe Ngoepe previously said a manhunt was launched for those involved in the murder of farmer Bertie Cilliers, 54, who was found dead at the Spitskop smallholding on Friday. Mahlangu said right-wing organisations "have opportunistically and for political expedience [chosen] to characterise farm murders not as a crime against which all South Africans should unite but as white genocide". "Unfortunately, some own goals have mostly contributed to a resurgence of racism that undermines peaceful co-existence within our communities, unity, reconciliation, nation building and social cohesion," he said.
